Game Preview


The upcoming La Liga fixture hosted at the Cívitas Metropolitano stadium on Sunday will witness Atlético Madrid, the host team, playing against their opponents, Real Sociedad.


Atlético Madrid is currently looking to secure another victory following their recent success in the Champions League, where they came out on top with a 3-2 scoreline against Feyenoord.


During this game, Atlético Madrid maintained possession for 48% of the game and made a total of 7 attempts at goal, with 3 of them successfully hitting the target. The goals for Atlético Madrid were scored by Mario Hermoso (7′, own goal), Álvaro Morata (12′, 47′), and Antoine Griezmann (45′). Their opponents, Feyenoord, managed to accumulate 17 shots on goal, with 7 of them directed towards the target. Dávid Hancko (34′) was the sole scorer for Feyenoord.



As for Real Sociedad, they will enter the forthcoming encounter on the back of a 0-2 victory over Red Bull Salzburg in their own Champions League fixture. During this match, Real Sociedad effectively controlled the ball for 52% of the match and made a total of 15 attempts on goal including 5 of them the target. Notably, Mikel Oyarzabal (7′) and Brais Méndez (27′) were the scorers for Real Sociedad.


Diego Simeone, Atlético Madrid’s manager, is extremely grateful as the squad currently has 0 fitness issues to be wary of. Real Sociedad’s manager, Imanol Alguacil, has only one fitness concern to address. Martín Merquelanz, who is currently suffering from a knee injury, will be unavailable for this game.


Real Sociedad has the potential to break Atleti’s defense, especially on the break. However Simeone’s side is also known for pushing their defensive block into counter attacking football extremely fast. We believe this game will be decided in the latter stages of the match, ultimately ending in a low scoring affair, with both sides focusing on their defensive play. Keep an eye out for this matchup for your soccer betting week.
